Nas has been in the news lately following the release of his Nasir album, claiming that the updated version is on the way.

He recently shared a few of his all-time favorite rap songs, of course they’re all classic, ranging from Run-DMC to Slick Rick.

“I’ll give you five that just come to my head. ‘Rebel Without a Cause’ by Public Enemy. No-brainer. Eric B. and Rakim, ‘Eric B. for President.’ ‘It Takes Two’ by Rob Bass and Easy Rock. Rest in Peace Easy Rock. ‘Children’s Story’ by Slick Rick. Wait, ‘Mona Lisa,’ Slick Rick. Wait. ‘La Di Da Di.’ Yeah. It’s either ‘Sucker MCs’ by Run-DMC, ‘It’s Like That,’ by Run-DMC, pick any Run-DMC. ‘Peter Piper.’ ‘My Adidas.’ I’ma go with ‘Sucker MCs’ by Run-DMC. That’s one of the most important records. Ever. Ever. Ever. And I could put ‘The Bridge’ in there. MC Shan and Marley Marl. Come on.” he said.
